I might need to photograph a couple of rooms to rent, obviously I know that they need to be tidy first.
Any ideas about the best way to photo of them, I guess the best way would be not to use flash but use a long shutter speed to get natural light.
They are small rooms btw what aperture would be good.
I will be using a Canon 7D MKII and 18-135 STM lens, would HDR be an idea?

I did some HDR images inside of the church that I attend using natural lighting. The images worked out very well, I thought. Definitely use any ambient light coming in through any windows. I'm not sure about using a flash for this but something tells me that the pros use them when they need to.

I would take shots from the viewpoint of the renter. From the head of the bed, from the vicinity of the desk/chair/table area, looking in through the entrance, view out the window including the window framing, etc.,. I'm definitely no architectural photographer but those are just some things that come to mind....and my post gives you a small bump back up top. ;)

Set up your camera on a tripod and experiment...trial and error will definitely get you there and I'm sure you'll be getting more advice from folks more knowledgeable than me. :)

Best wishes on the photos and the renters,
Ed

Thank you all, I should have said that I am in London UK and that the rooms are small - sadly most of them are here.

Lots of people, small area,....cramped quarters?

Since it appears that people would be expecting small rooms I would not make too much of an attempt to show "roominess" but rather show the utilitarian aspects of it. A shot from above showing the floor plan/layout of the furniture. What other amenities will the renter have? Is this a "board and breakfast" type of setup? Shared/communal bath? Shared living/activity room? Washing machine and dryer? Think about what else you can include that will be available to the renter. Just some thoughts.
